    Our family, nine in all, spent a week here in July. The place is certainly distinctive, but its clean, private, well-furnished, roomy, and filled with a sense that strangers are welcome and ought to enjoy their visit. The lake, 100 yards away, is WONDERFUL. We will definitely consider another stay here next year.

      That is so nice to hear John. We love it when renters find a little bit of “home” at one of our cottages. Thanks so much for the kinds words and we hope to see you in the future!

    We stayed here July 2012 and absolutely loved it! We have 4 children (2 boys and 2 girls) and they were all able to have their own room, which they loved! It truly felt like a home. One favorite spot for all was the hammock chair in the cupola, with 360* views! We played badminton, had a cookout, with fresh green beans from the garden, swam in the lake (a little cold for these southerners) and toured the area. The house is warm, inviting, well situated for exploring Acadia, Schoodic Point and the area. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone!

    The pics on this website do NOT do justice to this beautiful home! We were ever so pleasantly surprised when we arrived!! Very spacious and unique. Close enough to civilization (even Bar Harbor!) and yet far enough away to enjoy the quiet woods of Maine while listening to the loons. The house was very well stocked with anything one could need and more! The only drawback for me are that the trees block most of the view of the water, but the water was close enough walking distance to enjoy and once time was spent on the pond kayaking, it didn’t matter much. The yard was huge and our 2 1/2 year old enjoyed the playground. Very private lot with the feel that there were no neighbors for miles. The house was very clean and had all the modern conveniences you could ask for. There were thousands of blueberries in the yard; we picked some to add to morning pancakes. A great place to vacation! We’ll be back 🙂

    It was Saturday evening around 7PM, after the rain, it was dark when we got to un-paved road. GPS signal was not working correctly. The kids were nervous because of forest’s darkness. We turned around to the main road, decided to turn GPS off and followed email direction. We finally got to the gate which said “Donnellys-Dome”, what a relief…Other members of our family did not arrive until 10PM and I had to drive out to guide them in. My advice is to get to the dome as early as you can, walk around the pond or play yard, then check right in at 4PM.
    The cottage inside was well cleaned upon our arrival. There was a bag of Maine candy and a welcome message. There was also a note telling where to pick good blue berry. The kids were joyful running around, up and down stairs, tried to locate what room they wanted.
    Kitchen was well equipped with dishes, silverware, pots, pans, utensils and spices. That made cooking so easy and convenient. Refrigerator’s setting by owner was kind of low which caused our ice cream melted. Hot water was on/off quite often which made it difficult to shower.
    The atmosphere was so nice early morning, cool refreshing air, lay back on lounge chair with a cup of coffee and then watching birds. It was so relaxing that made our stress going away.
    All the kids were happy with in-house play game and outside play yard. They enjoyed picking blue berry and my wife ended up making a few pies to go with our melted ice cream…yum, yum.
    I would highly recommend to friend and family to rent this cottage when they visit Bar Harbor. We definitely will come back.
